Yep, I use two-one facing the front and one in the rear.
Most people tend to have front facing only, but with a rear facing camera you can capture all those tailgaters and nose pickers etc!
Very useful if someone hits you from behind whilst using their phone perhaps.
The cameras I use are MINI 0801 and were about £50 each from Amazon.
The cameras have a mount that sticks onto the glass and the camera just slots in.
The power lead connects directly to the base so can be left in situ.
I just run the power lead around the trim and plug it into the accessory socket (you can always hard wire them if desired).
They switch on and off with the ignition, and record in continuous segments until the memory card is used up whereupon the oldest segments get recorded over.
Check out my youtube channel for some footage.
Also check out this guy for lots of detailed reviews, both on website and youtube.
Thank you for the detailed reply! I am definitely going to look into this one.
I got one for my brother and a month in he already had a chance to use it because he got a guy back out of the underground driveway and hit him. Crazy!
I really really really wish that the mini had the feature already built in as MintMark mentioned. It seems like such an easy thing to add. I'd rather have more safety and proof on the road than have the the thing do the parking for me :/
